Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good (Psalm 135:3).
God has given me a loving wife, who is not only my partner in life, but a companion in ministry. She sees a life in His service as a privilege and blessing rather than as a burden or a symbol of status.
God has given me a one-of-a-kind son. Daniel is more than a son, he’s my friend, and has been my great source of joy and support through many dark days. He is a better behaved child than I ever was.
God has given me family and friends who make life both interesting and satisfying. Parents, siblings, church mates, and another pastor and his family a world away who are more than friends.
God has given me a home to shelter me from the elements, when so many others don’t have a place of their own.
God has given me more food than I can ever eat, and a greater variety of food than I can ever count.
God has opened doors of ministry via the internet and in various places around the world this past year. He’s shown me how very blessed I am, and how ungrateful I can be.
God has given me His Word, that I might know Him and keep from the pathway of sin.
God has given to me salvation through His Son, a gift so undeserved, beyond what I could ever earn or imagine; eternal life, both now and forevermore.
God has been so good to me … and will be again tomorrow.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY!
